    Rebuilt 7, 9380's last night with new cases. 400+ flights and still impressive that the gears are as tight as new. Off to a new owner today :)

    Had to do a little repair on my dlg after a dumbass moment yesterday. Buddy offered me to fly his brand new BAMF dlg. Third flight I was ending up a little short on landing and totally missed that my dlg was in the way. Caught the te of the aileron on mine with the bottom le of the vertical on his. Mine had to be repaired his will get a replacement part. Literally less than an hour flight time on his new bird and I go a F it up. Felt so horrible.

    Basically just mixed up some finishing resin with some carbon fiber dust to tint it black. Will unclamp it here shortly to see how it turned out. 6C5C4F6F-340C-4EE4-956C-313A86D831FE.jpeg 41E7C922-7A92-4507-8C39-A24BADC48F48.jpeg 9E94300D-47A5-4B69-843D-0E6795A64DE5.jpeg DD2719D6-5D59-4AEA-9402-6AD8D5676FA3.jpeg E68BA012-5027-413D-BAA7-C07C09B19156.jpeg A571AE4D-A77C-4BE4-9BAE-15C13C84CFFE.jpeg 40ADB3C7-78C8-4779-9A30-ED048EE8A1E5.jpeg 55D55C16-BAD0-45AF-8585-61F9F74790FE.jpeg B78A87B3-FF4A-4C15-B978-4EC9456C633B.jpeg 7C67C2EE-0958-4001-A903-B4F859E18DAC.jpeg

  3. I hate it when I have a bonehead moment. I almost crashed Frank Noll’s DLG at an event once. I saved it just in time! A moment I’ll never forget. I doubt he will either. :D

    Repairs completed other than some light sanding with 400 then 600 grit papers and I can buff and wax and it will be almost not visible. 17B58D2D-C99D-463B-8905-903306829CBA.jpeg 95010161-AC98-4DC8-AF53-A5D1CE7F6E2B.jpeg

    Fine tuning the "dynamic balance" of the parts that go round and round meant yet another new spinner for the QQ300 o_O.

    The cone of the CF spinner is "out of round" and just wont balance good enough for my liking.
    The 2" anodized black TruTurn did the trick! Spools all the way up smooth as silk now :).

    @Snoopy1 I used one on my EF 104 with the DA120. Very nice stand off. Make sure you know what depth you need. They come in varying depths.

    I get that but why would you use one if all you have to do is move the firewall 1 inch further out and not use it.
